Hi--I have droid x, been about a month now. Still finding my way around it. I'm sure 99% of the questions I ask here will be embarrassingly nooby, but I figured I'd take the plunge anyway; the more I ask now, the more I'll be able to figure out on my own as I wear away at my noobness.
So . . . current issue: when I bought the phone, the dude in the verizon store set up the gmail account for me. Apparently it was a necessary first step in order to keep my unwieldy contact list intact.
So now today, I dig out this Messages widget, that displays current messages for whatever inboxes you associate with it. I figured out how to add my work email to it, and it automatically included texts on its own authority, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to add my gmail inbox to it.
When I go to "add account," I get every option in the world--myspace? skype?--but no gmail. I tried clicking the Google widget, but when I go through the steps, I get the message "Account already exists. There is already a [my gmail address] account on this phone." [The "duh" is only implied.]
Um, yeah, it's already on this phone, but how do I include in this Messages widget??
Thanks in advance.
